Rootkit removal not viable

November 27, 2011 at 16:58:15
Specs: Windows XP
IRP hook rootkit.

I have the same problem with the rootkit and using AVG it will not heal or remove.

Is it a serious threat and if so, just try what you recommend using the 3 solutions in the exact order?

Thanks.

David

Try using Hitman Pro, Kaspersky's TDSS Killer you may also want to try Sophos Anti-Rootkit. All mentioned programs are free(hitman has a 30day trail). You mentioned that you are using AVG. Most of the times antivirus programs are unable to detect rootkit infections, try the mentioned programs above.

Just an FYI. I had the exact same problem with AVG identifying IRP hooks. So I ran Hitman Pro (free edition) and it identified a couple of rootkit issues/remnants. Hitman Pro removed them. I reran the AVG rootkit scan and it came up clean.
